John Beckelman: Horizon Suite @ The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Oct 22 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

John Beckelman’s Horizon Suite is a group of six recently-completed three-dimensional landscapes. Using the expressive potential of clay and a variety of other materials, Beckelman’s work explores the transitional space where the sky meets the land or sea. The horizontal sweep of this space is mediated by intimate moments of surprising texture, shifting light, and fleeting color. Horizon Suite attempts to gently entice the viewer into the inner landscapes and interior spaces of our imagination and memory. Beckelman finds a curious intersection between the seemingly enduring and timeless character of earth and the fleeting yet wonderful impermanence of the world in which we live. John Beckelman’s art has been shown in exhibitions throughout the country and he has been the recipient of numerous awards, commissions, and grants. He received his master of fine arts degree in ceramics and his master of science degree in ceramics from Illinois State University. Beckelman is the Robert O. Daniel Professor of Art, Emeritus at Coe College. He lives and works in Cedar Rapids.

Today’s subject is ghosts… but don’t be scared.  These are messy “ghosts” that are fun to make, and you can take them home, haunt-free.
